Salt Dough Flowers

But luckily, it takes quite a long time.

In addition, despite of the simplicity of the the salt dough technique, you can make maybe the most beautiful mothers day flowers using salt dough! You should definately try it!

Just scroll down to see the three salt dough flower ideas below with all the necessary instructions.

IMPORTANT NOTE: to make the actual salt dough, you'll need 1 cup of salt, 2 cups of flour and 1 cup of water. First, mix the salt with the flour and then add the water.

So now, we can start!
